After half world has bought the exclusive LEGO Disney minifigures collection, it finally arrived to the Den. There are 18 minifigures inspired in the most mitical characters of the Disney universe.
The collection, in general, is very good although there are some figures that could be a lot better. I don’t understand why some have a custom heads that makes them equal to the original and others have common LEGO heads that makes them… strange. If in some cases the head works, in others not really.
Stitch is the cute Alien the we can se in the animation movie Lilo & Stitch. It’s the first figure of the collection and one of the two that don’t have a pair. This means that we don’t have, in this collection, other minifigure from the movie Lilo & Stitch. The minifigure is really good, mainly because the head is very similar to its original. Has a good level of detail in the front and in the back, although i think the blue could be darker (more similar to the movie character). The head is made of rigid ABS plastic, which is good because LEGO, for these complex heads, sometimes uses rubber which makes the final product mediocre. In my opinion, one of the most accurate minifigures in all the collection.
Toy Story Alien
The Alien is mitical figure in the Toy Story first movie. Who does remember the claw vending machine at Pizza Planet? Like Stitch, the head is made of ABS and the detail is enough to make it very similar to the original character. The figure is very similar with the one released in 2010 in the set 7598 Pizza Planet Truck Rescue. I would even risk to say that the head is the same. The body is more detailed and more close to the original.
Buzz is the second Toy Story minifigure. In the image we can see the diference between the figure released in 2010 and the one release in the exclusive minifigure series. The head released in 2010 is more accurate which makes the minifigure more close to the original character. Regarding the detail, the one release in the Disney Series has more detail and the quality of the printing is also superior. The armour is the same piece, but the color scheme changed a little.
In resume, although the minifigure release in this series has more detail, I prefer the one released in 2010 because is closer to the original.
And that’s it for today. In my next post I’ll review 3 more minifigures: Aladdin, The Genie and Maleficent.
